Avocados are easily my favorite food. A lot of people shy away from them because they are known to be very fattening. But, don’t be afraid of all fats, some fatty acids are essential to healthy brain functioning. Omega 3 and 6 essential fatty acids are found in avocados. If you need potassium and hate bananas, avocado are actually a better source of potassium. They have tons of vitamins and dietary fiber, which is why most people call them a superfood. Last, but not least, my favorite fact is that an avocado has more usable protein than an 8 ounce steak. Mmmm so yummy!
